If you haven't given this show a listen, you really should. This show will kick your ass faster than a Tony Iommi riff at a Black Sabbath concert from 1975.
Dark Star into China Cat Sunflower!!! Hmmmm, smells like 1968.

There is a little tape hiss, but that's the only thing I've found wrong with this show. Back to SabbathHook.

William, do tell what the deal is with the 9.20.68 show. Thought I would warp my mind a bit and step into 68 this morning. Was ready for Cryptical>TOO>Cryptical but got St.Stephen > Eleven and some monster jam. Now I ain't complaining, but it wasn't what was advertised.

You got me...as the reviewers note, something is wrong...over the years, I have come into the possession of a SBD for "Greek Theatre" on 9-20-68, and it is a one disk show, typical for the time (eg, Schoolgirl, DS, STST, 11) and this is different. I assume it is a fall show (defn not Jan; given StSt), and perhaps Eagle Aud, WA, but I have never done any homework on it...So, I have been assuming my SBD is the correck one for this date at GrTh, but just an assumption.

CLIFF probably knows...

The 9-20-68 show is sometimes labeled Berkeley Community Theatre. The Greek is really 10-20-68 and they didn't come back there until 1981...

Right--that was my screw up. That 10-20 show is a great one; good quality!

It is 9/20/68, but it is Berkley Community Theater, not Eagle's Auditorium...

http://www.deadlists.com/default.asp?http://deadlists.com/deadlists/showresults.asp?KEY=9/20/68

The setlist for the (9/20) Eagle Auditorium:

Cryptical Envelopment > The Other One > Cryptical Envelopment > Clementine > New Potato Caboose > Born Cross-Eyed > Spanish Jam

matches the set list for the January 22 show that was in fact played there on that date. It is truly an extraordinary show with a Spanish Jam that rivals any they have ever played...

The sadly incomplete file here for 9/20/68, in addition to the deluxe St. Stephen -> Eleven suite, includes a 30+ minute, fascinating drum jam session which I attempted to point out to you (Will) only a week or so ago in a drum related thread.

Apparently, a couple percussionists named Vince Delgado and Shankar Ghosh sat in on this 9/20 session, and played some very cool drum music. If you have some patience, you may find it pretty neat, at times you half expect to hear Ravi Shankar and George Harrison join in...

Hey you two--my bad again (!); the disk I had labeled as 9-20 was in fact, 10-20-68 (the 'real' Gr Theatre), so I just confused you, Wineland, with my earlier post...

Sorry. From the reviews and other sites, I am absolutely confident that CLIFF has it straight as to the Brk Com Th show, 9-20-68, etc.

Though I profess to be "mr. 68" it is clear who REALLY warrants that moniker...

Dude, when it comes to "Bare-wires" late '68 "high-intensity" jamming, you are the shaman!

Too kind, sir...too kind. I fucked up.

But, I will say that your name is forever wedded to "Spanish Jam" (esp Jan versions!) and I will humbly take the left overs, "CE-->OO-->CE" and of course, "StSt."

It's nice to know that 68 has at least two watch dogs.

What other year can say that?

Well, 70s boys?

Just kidding...

I am sure all of you can do the same for any given date in May, 77. But, does it matter?

Again, kidding...

Thanks Cliff. You're right, that drums jam is great. My wife brought home the Diga Rythm Band cd a couple months ago and we enjoyed that too. I'll check out the Jan 68 show you mentioned. Can't wait to hear the Spanish Jam.

You two will convert me to a 68 Head if you keep this up.

Yes, you did, and I streamed away...thought I thanked you; it was around the time of the two of you turning me on to the March AUDs, right?

My bad.

Neat stuff.

Oh my, I just got through with the Spanish Jam on 1.22.68. I'm spent. For a while there it sounded like the Airplane were playing White Rabbit. That was a good listen. Thanks to both of you, WilliamT and Cliff, for pointing me to this show.
